Google Glass in the Gobi: Dinosaur Nest
by AMNH on
Last summer, a team led by the Museum's Provost of Science Michael Novacek and Paleontology Division Chair Mark Norell headed to the Gobi for the joint American Museum of Natural History/Mongolian Academy of Sciences expedition. The group included Aki Watanabe, one of Mark Norell's students at the Museum's Richard Gilder Graduate School, who was recently chosen as a beta-tester for Google Glass and who recorded video on Glass throughout the trip.
In this video, Watanabe shows his first find: a fossil dinosaur nest! (Explorer Roy Chapman Andrews and his team discovered the first dinosaur eggs known to science on a Museum expedition to Mongolia in the 1920s). Watch Watanabe extract the eggs and nest, and package it for its return to the lab for further study.
